    schema:description ""Norman princes encouraged the celebration of these remarkable achievements in histories written to verify the legitimacy of their claims to settle and dominate their lands. From Dudo of Saint-Quentin (late tenth/early eleventh century) to the twelfth-century vernacular histories of Wace and Benoit, the Norman historical tradition largely acceded to these expectations. Beneath the surface, however, virtually all the histories told a different story, condemning the Normans treacherous to kin and ally as well as to foe." "Emily Albu examines the myths the historians fashioned, and the other literary strategies they employed, to expose and explain the wolfish predation at the core of Normanness."--Jacket."@en ;
